Is it just us or is this year flying by already? Before we know it, it’ll be Summer and then the next thing you know the Christmas decs will be up again! You hit ‘adulthood’ and the days just fly by right? Anyway, February is officially over, so we’re back with another favourites post! Here’s what we’ve been loving over the past month.
Rachel – On a recent visit to Boots, they had a buy 1 get 2nd half price offer on Barry M makeup. I initially went in to only pick up a new mascara but when there’s an offer on you just can’t help yourself right? I thought I’d try out this matte lipstick in the shade ‘Pink Suede (150)’ since I’ve been loving nude lip colours lately! It applies smoothly and doesn’t dry my lips out at all. I love how the colour isn’t too noticeable but gives my lips a bit of colour. I think it will be a perfect Spring/Summer shade!
Lauren – So by now I’m pretty sure that everyone who reads our blog, knows I’m a sucker for a matte lip product! I find that I much prefer a lip cream to a lipstick now as they’re so much easier to apply and a lot less drying on my lips. Everyone always raves about Make Up Revolution so when I found their matte Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquers for just £3 I couldn’t resist buying one in the shade ‘Rebel’. I’m not sure how much wear I’ll get out of it since it is quite a bright colour, although I wanted to try it as it’s something a bit different!
Favourite Lush Product:
Towards the end of the month the Lush Easter range was released and of course we had to get this little guy! We’re huge fans of shower jellies and not only is Bouncy Bunny in the shape of an adorable bunny rabbit but it smells amazing. It’s almost like a strong refreshing orange scent with a hint of caramel.
Favourite Clothing Item:
Lauren – For me there’s nothing better than a nice comfy tee. I’ve always been a lover of Vans whether it’s footwear or clothing and I always find myself doing a little online shop. Vans recently bought a new range of clothing out and when I saw this tee I instantly fell in love!
Rachel – I love treating myself to something from Urban Outfitters every once in a while, but they can be a bit pricey. I was however, really shocked to find this cute velvet top in the sale for just £8! I love berry colours and although it’s Spring now I’ll probably still wear this a lot. It goes perfectly with a black denim skirt or even some high waisted jeans and for £8, I sort of couldn’t not buy it!
Twenty One Pilots are a band we never thought would be our cup of tea. We heard ‘Stressed Out’ at the beginning of the month when we were flicking through the music channels and it’s completely changed our minds. We get what the fuss is about now! It’s something really different for us to listen to but it’s such a catchy and unique sounding song that’s been stuck in our heads practically all month. The same goes for the rest of their album ‘Blurryface’!
Lauren – I’m really into homeware at the moment, anything to make my room look a little prettier is always a winner! Primark’s homeware is so lovely and is always so reasonably priced. On a recent shopping trip I found this beautiful wooden tray for only £6!! It’s perfect for storing bits and bobs and helps my room look a little tidier.
Rachel – I’ve been wanting a bag like this for so long so when I saw them for sale in a Lush store I picked one up. It was around £6 which I don’t think is too bad considering how strong it feels and how big it is! I can use it to carry my shopping or just use it as a normal bag. I love the message it has on it too and it’s something I feel strongly about.
Rachel’s birthday was in February and to celebrate we went to the zoo with Joe and our cousin, Connor. Despite a bit of rain and the rubbishy cold British weather, we had fun seeing all the adorable animals and afterwards we had our whole family over to celebrate!
Our favourite blog this month just had to go to the lovely Charlotte! She was the first friend we made through blogging and she’s supported us from the start. Not only that but her blog, twentysomethingxo, is one of our favourites. Everything about it is lovely from the pictures to every single word she writes down! She posts all different kinds of stuff from beauty to lifestyle and we love catching up with her posts and seeing what adventures she’s getting up to. Oh, and she’s made us really want to visit Bournemouth too! Make sure you visit Charlotte’s blog and leave her a nice comment, she deserves it!
This one goes to another blogging friend of ours, Hannah. Hannah’s Instagram has become one of our favourites recently and you can tell she’s putting so much effort into it. The composition in every one of her photos is perfect and everything looks so neat! She has one of those Instagram pages where you find yourself liking every single picture!
We hope you’ve all enjoyed reading this post, hopefully this month we’ll be able to find the time to create a lot more content. We’d love to know what you’ve been getting up to so let us know in the comments!
